From Puppy Pools to Bug Repellents, a Look at the Latest in Summertime Products




Doggie Pool

Forget plastic kiddie pools. DOOG’s Pop-Up Pool will be the cooldown method of choice this summer for discerning dogs. The watertight canvas pool opens and closes with a quick twist, and comes in small, medium and large.


Mix It Up

Achy, itchy, chubby and even backed-up pups can benefit from GO! Solutions by PETCUREAN. The meal mixers come in four formulas — Hip & Joint Support Pork, Skin & Coat Care Salmon, Weight Control Turkey and Digestive Health Turkey — that feature freeze-dried nutritional and functional ingredients such as single-source proteins and whole fruits and veggies. Available in 3.5-ounce bags.



Cone of Calm

Turn the cone of shame into one of calm with CARDINAL PET CARE’S Remedy+Recovery Calming Lavender Mist E-Collar Kit. The kit includes a 4-ounce bottle of mist and four adhesive-backed fabric discs. Pet parents simply spray two of the discs and attach them to the e-collar, where the scent promotes relaxation.


Fanny Pack Fun

KONG H20’s Trek from BAMPZ keeps hands free to hold a leash or throw a ball. The waist pack features two bottle holders, a poop bag dispenser, and three pockets to hold everything from a cell phone to tasty treats. The heavy-duty neoprene proves durable and also helps to keep water cold. Adjustable straps allow for the perfect fit.



Keep Cool and Repel Bugs

The Cool Pup Neck Gaiter from INSECT SHIELD not only repels mosquitoes, ticks, flies and fleas, it also features advanced fabrics that keep dogs cool and comfortable. The stretchy, machine-washable gaiter also has a hole for convenient leash attachment. Available in small, medium and large.


Travel Safety

For those who hit the road with their pups, NHV NATURAL PET PRODUCTS offers the Travel Essentials Kit. It comes with Matricalm, which reduces stress and anxiety; Target Spray tick, mosquito and flea repellent; and Heal Care, an ointment that soothes skin and paws bitten by insects or burned by the sun. All products are 100 percent natural and vet formulated.



Pack a Lunch — and More

My Pet Pail holds everything a dog or cat needs for mealtime away from home. Made by PET PARTNERS WORLDWIDE, the durable and lightweight ’50s-style lunch box opens to reveal lidded bowls for food and water set into the base and containers for food and water tucked into the top. My Pet Pail uses a collar as the handle and a leash as the carrying strap. It also can serve as a home feeding system, thanks to the detachable top and non-skid bottom.


Bathtime on the Go

Dogs love nothing more than to roll in stinky seaweed at the beach or take a mud bath on a mountain trail. Whatever the mess, pet parents can keep it out of their vehicles with the RinseKit, a portable and pressurized shower system. New products in the line include the RinseKit LUX Soft Tote, which holds 3 gallons of water and can serve as a cooler when not in use. Accessories such as a heater system, pressure booster and sink adapter also are available.


Puppy Essential

The Comfortable Beginnings New Puppy Starter Kit from SMARTPETLOVE helps ease the transition to a new home. It contains a Snuggle Puppy plush that features a real-feel heartbeat and a heat pack that mimic mom and littermates, lessening loneliness and encouraging quality sleep. The kit contains three heat packs, plus an extra-soft Snuggle Blanket, freezable Puppy Teething Aid and Puppy’s 1st Toy.


Just-Right Temp

ZOOMED’s ReptiTemp Digital Thermostat keeps habitats at hot or cold as desired, from 50 to 122 degrees F. Easy-to-adjust controls and a 6-foot-long sensor cable allow for temperature control of all habitat sizes, plugging into 600 watts of heating devices or 150 watts of cooling devices.


A Little Help

Getting in and out of the litter box proves a challenge for many arthritic, disabled and senior cats. The Kitty Box Ramp comes to their aid. Made in the U.S.A. from 100-percent recycled corrugated material, the ramp adjusts to three heights, clamps onto the litter box and comes with an easy-grip, replaceable tread pad. It comes in blue, lavender and gray, and all parts are recyclable.


Just Breathe — and Fetch!

Because some balls reduce airflow when held in the mouth, PETMATE made the Chuckit! Breathe Right Fetch Ball. Its patented proprietary construction allows for easier breathing, allowing dogs to run farther and fetch longer. Compatible with all Chuckit! Launchers, the ball comes in small, medium and large.


Dehydrated Delish

When ROYAL ANIMALS owner and founder Susan Traub lost her beloved dog Sabrini to cancer, she decided to make a treat line in her honor. Sabrini’s Treats contain no additives or preservatives, and come in dehydrated wild salmon, wild salmon and sweet potato, wild salmon and herring, and chicken. A portion of proceeds benefit canine cancer research.


High Kitty Kitty

Not only do the Feline Frankfurters from B&B CREATIONS get kitties high, but 100 percent of net proceeds benefit animal welfare. The organic-catnip toys come in a four pack.


Deshed and Destress

Part of the Pet Well massagers line from GAIAM/FIT FOR LIFE, this Massaging Groomer gently desheds a dog’s coat while also stimulating their blood flow and reducing muscle tension. Using the combination of small and large silicone bristles helps to boost joint flexibility and range of motion, plus reduces the amount of shed hair around the house.




NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
